A widow, Mrs. Florence Ede, has been strangled by suspected robbers on her farm in Chikanda, a border community in the Baruten Local Government Area of Kwara State.

The deceased, popularly known as Mama do good, hailed from Enugu State and was a food seller when she came to the community in 1985, but became a commercial farmer after the death of her husband.

A member of the Igbo community in Chikanda, Mr. Mayor Akonobi, told our correspondent on Sunday that Ede was strangled by the assailants, who had trailed her to the farm.

He said the mother of four had a huge amount of money on her and had wanted to pay the labourers before she was killed.

He stated that the robbers also carted away 12 bags of rice harvested from the victim’s farm.

“The only guard at the farm when the incident occurred ran away when the assailants attacked her,” Akonobi added.

The Kwara State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ajayi Okasanmi, who confirmed the incident, said  the police had commenced investigation into the crime.

“The guard and the labourers have been arrested. They are helping us with our investigation,” he added.  (Punchng.com)
